Country music fans are singing praises for the Minnesota Lottery’s newest $5 ticket — Living Lucky with Luke Combs — which offers instant cash prizes up to $100,000 and a unique 2nd chance that money can’t buy — an all-expenses-paid VIP trip for two to Nashville for a private concert from award-winning country star Luke Combs.

The Living Lucky with Luke Combs scratch ticket is on sale now at lottery retailers statewide. Non-winning tickets can be entered at for the chance to win one of four trip packages.

All Minnesotans, lottery players or not, are living lucky, because lottery dollars help to create access to so many great natural resources such as a national park, an expansive state park system, and an abundance of scientific and natural areas — all of which have benefited from Minnesota Lottery proceeds through the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund (ENRTF).

Voyageurs National Park

Voyageurs National Park in northern Minnesota near International Falls is Minnesota’s only national park. The park offers a variety of recreational opportunities year round and is one of the best spots in the continental U.S. to see the northern lights. An ENRTF grant helped acquire a 30 acre former resort site on Crane Lake to build an additional entrance point to the park.

Minnesota’s Expansive State Park System

The Minnesota State Parks system includes 75 state parks and recreation areas and 13 state trails. More than half have benefited from lottery proceeds, including the Soudan Underground Mine State Park in Soudan where you can explore Minnesota’s oldest and deepest iron mine and Zippel Bay State Park in Lake of the Woods County where you can experience pristine white sandy beaches right here in Minnesota.

Scientific and Natural Areas

Almost half of Minnesota’s 161 scientific and natural areas (SNAs) have been permanently protected, restored or managed with the help of the ENRTF. SNAs are undeveloped public lands that represent some of Minnesota’s most unique landscapes and are home to rare plants, animals, and endangered species.
